On my way to the sunrise, I heard about “Regret Prevention” on the radio.
They talked about “Regret Prevention” like it was a well known concept like “Fire Prevention”.
Smokey the Bear (as far as I know) isn’t an IPHONE app, though.
They were talking about only one of the “Regret Prevention” applications that have popped up.
This particular app prevents you from making calls to people after you’ve had too many drinks.
You buy and download the IPHONE app. Then, you enter the contact numbers of people you just shouldn’t be calling if you are loaded. When you activate the app (hopefully before you are cross-eyed), then those contacts disappear from your phone book for 12 hours. There is a debate going on about upping the 12 hour black out to 24.
I am speechless.
But, I’ll find my voice later–12-24 hours later preferably– after my last cocktail. A New Series has been born.
It’s only 9 AM, however, and I’m just starting on my first cocktail as I Google “Regret Prevention”.
People, join me, will you?
I hate to Google alone.
